I think Hank is one of the only players in the league who could play a 10 minute shift lol. I mean I realize how nuts that seems to all who have played and he would just be gassed but I mean watch him during the long shifts on PKs. Just doesn't get tired.

That PK shift against the Pens in '08 was still one of the best.

I've always been a big fan of Zetterberg... not that my username gives it away or anything :ph34r:

I think he's almost virtually a lock for the "C" once Lidstrom retires. With Pavel showing signs that he will return to Russia, and Zetterberg being locked into his contract, I don't think there's another choice.

Just curious too, I wonder who will get the other "A" once Draper is gone as well. I have a feeling that maybe Rafalski and Kronwall will rotate an "A", with Pavs hanging onto the primary "A". There are just so many good players and character players on the team it's difficult to choose.

I can assure you Datsyuk will be playing in the NHL for quite a while. All the talk about him going back to Russia was from him stating he would like to play there after his NHL career is over. Much like Lidstrom saying he would like to finish out if professional hockey days in the SEL.

Zetterberg is incredible. One of the best.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

My hopes for him this year:

-Plays with Datsyuk about 65% of the time.
-A 50 goal season that he's wanted for a couple years now.
-All-Star
-Selke Award nomination.

I'm not buying the claim that he's only a playoff performer yet.

EDIT: Forgot one.

Hank with a 50 goal and Pav with a 100 point season would be awesome. They deserve it. Maybe it will happen if they play together next year !

Well that being said. I would rather have a playoff performer than a regular season performer.

I thought about starting a thread where we copy and paste our favorite quotes about Red Wings players and it was inspired by reviews of Zetterberg during the 2009 playoffs.

Mike Babcock: "I believe he has a will tank deeper than anybody I've ever been associated with. As much as all the other attributes he has, to me, that's his greatest one. His drive train is fantastic."

Nick Lidstrom: "He comes back at you shift after shift. He's not going to back down or let you take over. That's one of the things that makes him so hard to play against, because he'll play like that defensively. But when he has the puck, he's going to hang onto it and make plays. He's one of those guys that's going to show up every night.

He's one of the best all-around players in the league, the way he can play at both ends of the ice. He's hard to play against. He's not going to give up. He's going to be close to you all the time."

Darren Helm: "You see when he's dead tired, he's still working to get back defensively. I just look at that and try to take a piece of it, how hard he works. I definitely respect what he does, putting up points and shutting down top lines as well."

Also if he does not play a couple of half ass games like last year. Maybe it was his back but whatever it was you could tell he was not giving his all.

Him not even having a Selke nomination is pretty ridiculous when you consider what he's done to the opposing team's star players time and time again.
